About this book

This volume features the proceedings of the Tenth International Conference on the Development and Application of Computer Techniques to Environmental Studies (ENVIROSOFT), and will be of interest to many specialists such as environmental scientists, planners and administrators, program developers, regulators and industrialists. The wide range of issues covered and the diversity of contributors demonstrate the in-depth penetration of computing into the scientific world. The papers included are divided under the broad headings: Environmental Management and Decision Analysis; Environmental Impact Assessment; and Air, Water and Soil Pollution, while several contributions confirm the necessity of specialised software for local, small scale issues.


Section 1: Environmental management and decision analysis A software set for environment monitoring networks; Optimal set for monitoring the environment in Estonia - neighbourhood analysis; The"Environment Impact Factor" (EIF) for produced water discharges - a tool for reducing environmental impacts; Electromagnetic field evaluation by means of standard algorithms and cartographic data: broadcast case into the urban environment; A decision support system for sustainable tourism: the SFIDA project; Mine stockpile design to minimise environmental impact; Approaches to modelling herbivore induced woodland grassland transitions Section 2: Environmental impact assessment Environmental impact assessment of selected explosives using field techniques, analytical laboratory and numerical models; EDEN: software to calculate the dose rate of energy for the non-human biota, due to the presence of radionuclides in the environment; The water production and the lost forest in the "El Quelite" river basin, Mexico Section 3: Air, water and soil pollution The influence of the LAI growing value during the vegetative period on the changing anti-erosion efficiency of some crops; Coupled scale and numerical modeling of soil and water pollution; Pollution flushing models in Stella; A mathematical model for predicting the flushing characteristics and pollution susceptibility of Centerport Harbor, New York; Results of atmospheric dispersion model for the localization of a MSW incinerator; Usage of advanced biological kinetic models in sizing wastewater biological treatment reactors; Water pollution in the Rio Conchos of northern Mexico; Study of fungal contamination of indoor public swimming pools in Uromia, Iran; Natural Attenuation Software (NAS): a computer program for estimating remediation times of contaminated groundwater
